19 August, 2017, 17:40 | Author: Leticia Walters
Fant, the presumptive starter going into the regular season, was hurt midway through the second quarter of Friday's game against the Vikings.
Second-year player Rees Odhiambo replaced Fant at left tackle for the rest of the first half. Earlier this week offensive line coach Tom Cable said Seattle was set on the left side of the offensive line with Fant at tackle and Luke Joeckel at guard.
Overall, though, the first-team offensive line did OK.

The Minnesota Vikings gave up on Blair Walsh and now he is already letting them know it was a bad decision.

With the Seahawks thin at receiver with Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson still out, Williams got the start.
Vikings quarterback Taylor Heinicke connects with tight end Bucky Hodges who brings it in at the goal-line for a 22-yard touchdown. The Vikings went head-to-head with the feared Seahawks and the latter outscored the former in that matchup.
But Minnesota did move it a little bit against Seattle's starting defense. Rookie Pat Elflein got his first preseason start at center after Easton had manned the position in last week's opener at Buffalo.
